It’s a long day in a bus but totally worth it if you have the time and want to escape Seoul to a beautiful National Park and Temple. Price is the normal Tour Guide on this tour and he was very friendly and helpful. Takes up to 3 hours to get there and another 3 hours approximately to get back to Seoul depending on traffic but the bus ride was very comfortable. Price takes very good care of his tourists and you will really like him. We had 3.5 hours at the park which was enough time to take the cable car to the top and get in another long hike down below. We stayed 1 hour at the Temple which was plenty of time too.

First the info of Viator of going back to Seoul , 5.20pm is wrong. The time should be at lest 7:30pm. It takes 6 - 7 hours both ways. There are different hiking routes in Mount Seorak. May take one of them. If not, take a cable car and do some walking up to one of mount top and then visit the temple. There is small museum of the temple, free for visit. Naksansa Temple is famous for the Seawater Koon-yim Good view of a seaside city.
